    Hi girls!

    I am def up for a meet this week if I am not moving or busy with Real Estate stuff. I will keep you posted.

    Emma - I braved it and went down to the strand this arvo and we almost got blown away!!! It was nice in the sun but just to windy! Don't you hate it when you forget the damn nappy bag!

    Shauna - Yep managed to go for xray on Saturday morning. But as I said thismorning, its playing up again. I could barely move thismorning. After I took some of those anti-inflammatory tabs it settled down.

    Hey Anna. If you are on the lookout for OB's, PLEASE CHECK C-SECT RATES!!!!! Esp in Townsville!

    BTW - I watched your Birth Montage lastnight. It was beautiful. You had some awesome pics! Very nice indeed.

    Well as I said to Shauna, my back is playing up again. I have to make another app with the chiro tomorrow. Hopefully i can get in this week! I really need to know whats going on.

    Thanks for the tip. As far as I know the OB I see is all for natural birthing if it can be achieved so I might ask her what her stance is on VBAC and VBA2C. Ah my montage lol My friend took the pics while she was watching, I want to video this time but Im not sure Im game enough.

    Oh while I remember, has anyone in here had a baby at the Mater Private (old or new)? Its where I am booked in to give birth and just wondering what its like. Looks alright.

    I *should* be at the meetup thursday. We just bought a new car so hopefully it will be on the road by next week. I have to get it rego'd and put over the pits etc so not sure when I'll be doing that. Anyone know a decently priced mechanic I can get to put it over the pits?

    Yep we will be there on Thurs. I love getting out of the house, everyday if I can. Declan needs a sleep so hopefully he can go down before we get there, if not put down a blanket and sleep there. At least the weather has been nice, albeit a little windy the last few days. Our skin is so dry at the moment. Not looking forward to summer though.
    I ended up with a c/s, Declan was breech throughout my whole pregnancy so I was completely fine with having a c/s and even went to the antenatal classes, but didn't listen much about natural birth. He ended up turning into position at 38 weeks, so we cancelled the c/s and tried natural, but just didn't happen. I don't have any of the regret that some mums talk about, but i will try for a VBAC next time.
    Anyway, i found a recipe for chicken pies, so i thought i would make that for tea since hubby is home to look after Declan. Who by the way has started sitting by himself!!!! Very exciting times.
    See you guys on thursday

    Hi girls!

    Am feeling 90% better today! Even think I might be able to make tomorrow's meet afterall! All depening on the weather. If its cold and yuck like today, I really should stay indoors. I don't want to risk getting real sick again.

    Emma - Oh its a vicious cycle is'nt it! My girls seem to fighting the bugs off quite well lately (touch wood). As for me, I just can't get rid of them!!! I am on double dose of antibiotics at the moment so hopefully that will flush all the badies out.

    Anna - I filmed Colby's birth. Don't regret it one bit and have watched it about 50 times!!! I love watching it. Its like reliving the day.

    A lady that I met through another mothers group ages ago had her baby yesterday. He was 10pound 9ounces!!! She had him via c-sect and was'nt due until the 31' st of Aug! Gosh! Imagine how big he would've been had she went over!!!

    Sara, I may not get my homebirth but I might get close too!
    Ive decided to go with the birth centre if theyll have me. I rang and spoke to them about my previous preg issues and the midwife is pretty sure I'll be cleared to stick with them. Good thing too because our savings are gone and money is tight what with us having to buy a 2nd car, so itll save me $70-$100 in appt fee's every month and $1600 in management fee's for a labour my OB's never even make. I feel great thinking about it so I guess its the right decision for me. Now to tell my OB at my appointment next week if the accept me, hope she doesnt feel insulted. Im so excited I could cartwheel around the house!! I'll be the 30th woman to birth there.

    You go girl!!!!

    I would've liked to have been able to birth at the birth centre but I just can't see myself in a hospital setting birthing anymore of my babies.

    I'm glad your happy about it hun!

    Tanya - the birth centre is at the Townsville Hospital. Not actually IN the hospital but a building outside it. I havent been there but if they accept me I will be taking a looksie. Its taking on women due on or after December 12th this year.

    I know exactly what you mean Sara. If I could have a homebirth right now I would. Who knows if I ever have any more (DH just keeled over Im sure lol) I will aim for a homebirth again.

    I wont be able to make tomorrow's meetup, my new car isnt ready to be picked up yet and DH is taking the Falcon in for a service tomorrow while he's at work but I promise to make the next one! Im going to clean up this pig sty tomorrow I think lol
